For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nevada

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – United States Attorney Nicholas A. Trutanich will join law enforcement, community leaders, and residents on Tuesday, August 6th at the Multi-Purpose Center, 1316 Sackett St., in Las Vegas, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., to celebrate the 36th annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event. In northern Nevada, the Carson City Sheriff’s Office will host National Night Out from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Mills Park, 1111 E. William St, in Carson City.

National Night Out is a community-building and crime prevention campaign that promotes collaborative law enforcement-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Thousands of communities nationwide will participate in neighborhood block parties, festivals, cookouts, safety demonstrations, seminars, and activities that heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and generate support for and participation in local anticrime efforts. Events such as these help to strengthen neighborhood spirit, police-community partnerships, and demonstrate a shared commitment for strong and safe communities.

“Annual events like National Night Out provide incredible opportunities to celebrate partnerships, renew energy, and enhance understanding about community-law enforcement concerns,” said U.S. Attorney Trutanich. “The more time officers spend interacting with community members, the deeper their understanding of the challenges facing those communities and the stronger their commitment to making them even better.”

“Reducing violent crime and promoting safety in American communities is a major focus of the Justice Department and U.S. Attorneys across the country,” said Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen. “National Night Out is an opportunity to strengthen the bonds, the respect, and the camaraderie between neighbors and law enforcement officers. These relationships make our country stronger and safer.”

National Night Out organizers are expecting over 16,000 communities and 38 million people nationwide to take part in community events on Tuesday.

Due to Nevada’s high temperatures in August, some law enforcement agencies host National Night Out in October. For more information on National Night Out events in Nevada, please visit the official website of your local police department.
